It's been an incredible year for Antrim, highlighted by a string of quality releases for Capital Heaven, MNL, Perspectives Digital and Sound Avenue. From its warped yet fluid foundation to creamy textures and haunting vocal elements it's a charming journey from start to finish. Mashy, emotive undertones roll with its wondrous cadence while a one minute break elevates the mood towards a gorgeous finish. Perhaps one of Antrim's most intriguing and sought after productions all year.
The first interpretation of 'Catwalk' is provided by Matias Chilano. The Argentinean artist is perhaps best known for his progressive minded productions on Dopamine Music, Soundteller Records and Sound Avenue. A storied history in the genre has made him one of the most in demand artists of the moment and he's delivered one of his all time best remixes here, taking 'Catwalk' into stripped down territory. Haunting from the outset; rolling beats, drifting motifs and organic designs fill out a meditative first act. The main break is perhaps the highlight, filled with psychedelic overtones and frayed sonics before an understated drop seals its brilliance.
The second interpretation of 'Catwalk' is provided by Jaap Ligthart. The Dutch artist has proven to be one of the more versatile producers working today where his music has found a home on Manual Music and Selador Records. Looking back over his discography you see he's equally adept at crafting deep, melodic house as he is rough and rugged progressive techno. Here he takes 'Catwalk' info funky, tech house territory which complements the previous two versions quite nicely. Refined and groovy, its playful jaunt is a delight for the mind and feet while a mild cross cultural flair adds just the right atmospheric tone.
The third and final interpretation of 'Catwalk' is provided by Alejandro Manso. His diversity has been noted with productions ranging from progressive house to techno with several stops in between. His 'Catwalk' interpretation closes the release out on a high note, sitting comfortably between deep house and techno. As dulcet rhythms roll, metallic designs and a grinding line lead perfectly into a stripped down second act. Void of any major break the anticipation stays high, expertly building to a tasteful finale and once again showing the Mexican artists diversity. A perfect conclusion to a well rounded release from Clubsonica Records that's not to be missed.
